SAF/SCCC "Supporting Campus Concealed Carry" Forum in Washington D.C. airs live on C-SPAN

On August 8, C-SPAN televised live video of a forum hosted by two groups that support giving college students the ability to carry a concealed weapon on campus.

From the article:

The Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) and Students for Concealed Carry on Campus (SCCC) argue that colleges would be safer if students were allowed to possess firearms.

"Colleges have entered into an informal alliance with criminals," said David Burnett, spokesman with Students for Concealed Carry. "By banishing lawfully-armed citizens, the college is denying the right to self-defense and creating a defense-free environment which leaves colleges extremely vulnerable – and attractive – to criminals."

Participants at the event included; Rep. Michael Simpson (R-ID), state representatives from Wisconsin and Texas, and a representative of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, as well as attorneys and scholars.

Headlines from Ohio's campuses in just this past two weeks alone expose Burnett's point all too well:

In addition to the threat of robbery, abduction, or secual assault, author and firearms instructor Massad Ayoob recently published a letter written to a state senator by one of his graduates, concerned about yet another emerging threat to people on college campuses - terrorism.

The author of the letter spends his days at a major institution of higher education as a grad student and bio-medical researcher. In it, the letter-writer documents violent language and rhetoric used by an extremist animal activist group known as "Negotiation is Over," which has been sighted on his campus handing out fliers offering $100 bounties on the photographs and personal information of students who, like myself, conduct animal research. According to the letter, the extremists have already posted on their website the name, address, home telephone number, and license plate number of a researcher in the department.
